Twenty Years Later – Is Windows 10 the new Windows 95?
Featured
Yesterday, Microsoft announced the next version of Windows, known as “10,” at an event in San Francisco.

I have reason to believe it’ll emerge as a best of breed and be the most significant release since Windows 95 in terms of favorability ratings. Why? Click the image to watch my blog video!
